A skein of Rasta is often like looking at a beautiful puddle of paint. Why not create a “bucket” to show off the beautiful colors?
The Rasta Bucket is knitted from the base to top in one piece, with options for the top edge and the handle. A grommet is used to attach handle to bucket, making it even more like a paint can!
Some sewing is required for the lining, instructions are included! You have the option on creating an open-topped container, or a drawstring-closed top.
There are many ways to make your own Bucket! Have fun with it!
Materials needed aside from the knitting items listed above:
- fabric (one or two fat quarters is plenty)
- fusible interfacing (heavy weight)
- the usual sewing tools (needle, thread, scissors, measuring tape, marker)
- 3/4” Ribbon or drawstring
- 1/2” grommets and tool for attachment (hammer also required)
- pre-made hooks or 12 gauge wire to make your own (and wire cutting/bending tools)
